Nice piece by CNET's Shara Tibken:
"One of the roadblocks that often comes up for kids who are blind is STEM [science, technology, engineering and mathematics] education, and students may reach a point where people say, 'As someone who's blind, engineering may not be the route for you,'" said Sarah Herrlinger, Apple's senior manager for global accessibility policy and initiatives.
Apple sees things differently.
"If we're talking about coding, how do we make sure students who are blind have opportunities to learn?" she said. "Swift Playgrounds is an example of how accessibility permeates all of the many facets of what we do."
